    • Enos Hill Killed When Hit By Auto

      Walking In Highway Near His Farm Home - Funeral Tomorrow

      Enos Hill, 55 a native and life long resident of this vicinity, was almost instantly killed shortly after 7 o'clock Monday night when hit by an automobile driven by George B. Merriam, Jr., of this village. Mr. Hill was walking in the highway just north of his home when the accident happened. He was traveling north with the northbound traffic when Mr. Merriam, accompanied by Matthew Brown, also going north, struck him. Mr. Merriam and Mr. Brown picked the injured man up, placed him in their car and rushed him to the office of Dr. John L. Mason, but he was dead before reaching there. A fracture at the base of the skull was given as the cause of death.

      Mr. Merriam immediately reported the accident to the state police substation where he made a statement and was released. According to Mr. Merriam's statement he was driving north and was blinded by the lights of an approaching truck and did not see Mr. Hill in the road ahead of him. Assistant District Attorney C. J. Gorman was called and made an investigation and released the body to Paul K. Foster, local undertaker.

      Mr. Hill was the son of the late Charles Hill and was born here 55 years ago. He has always made his home here on the farm formerly owned and operated by his father.

      He is survived by his widow, Flora Decator Hill; two daughters, Mrs. Dorothy Williams and Mrs. Elizabeth Leopold, both of Syracuse, and one brother, Harold Hill of Buffalo.

      The funeral will be private at the home Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock with the Rev. A.W. Budd of the Congregational church, officiating. Friends may call this afternoon and evening. Burial will be in Pulaski cemetery.
